THE BEST KETO CREPES
Quick and tasty keto breakfast recipes don't get much better than these easy keto crepes. And if you've never made crepes before, you're going to love how simple this recipe is to make and how delicious they are.
Honestly, there isn't a better recipe that is just as delicious for breakfast as for dessert as these crepes.
These are like a light, thin pancake with a wonderfully airy and fluffy texture. And these keto crepes are made without flour, so they hold together really well, instead of being dry and crumbly!
Plus, you can transform these versatile crepes into a savory or sweet treat, and I have a ton of savory and sweet combinations we'll go over later on!
And since you only need 4 common ingredients to make them, you'll probably always have what you need ready to go!
As I just mentioned, we will be using super common ingredients to make these low carb crepes. And these ingredients come together to create little soft and golden paper-thin perfection.
Here's what you'll need:
- 1 cup cream cheese
- 5 eggs
- 1 tablespoon macadamia nut oil
- Pinch of salt
- 1 teaspoon Confectioners Swerve
An ingredient list doesn't get more simple than this!
By the way, if you have any leftover eggs you can use them to make these keto friendly egg bites.
Oh, and another sweetener you can use in place of the Confectioners Swerve is Lakanto's Powdered Sweetener. Both will work just as well to give these crepes a delightful touch of sweetness without adding any carbs or sugar!
HOW TO MAKE CREPES KETO
These crepes might be one of the easiest low carb recipes you can make. You can have them on the table in no time - they seriously take just minutes to make, and the result is incredible.
So let's not waste any more time and get into the recipe!
STEP 1: COMBINING THE INGREDIENTS
First, put all of your ingredients into a large mixing bowl, and using either a hand mixer or whisk, combine your ingredients until you have a smooth batter.
And instead of mixing your ingredients in a bowl, you could also add them to a blender and blend until a smooth batter forms.
STEP 2: COOKING YOUR CREPES
Once you have a batter, heat a medium nonstick pan over medium heat and grease it with butter or refined coconut oil. And make sure you turn your heat to a little below medium - any temperature over medium will be too hot.
Then spoon about ⅓ cup of batter into your heated pan, swirling the batter evenly across the pan.
PRO TIP: To swirl the batter, tilt the pan in every direction as you are dropping the batter in the middle of the pan. Swirl it about 2-3 times until the crepe batter spreads across the pan evenly. By the way, this video is a great cooking guide on crepe making.
Once the batter covers the pan, cook your crepe for about 1 minute until it is golden and the batter is dry around the edges. Then flip it and cook the other side for about 1 minute.
Repeat the batter pouring and cooking process for the rest of your crepes, and enjoy!

Here are some of my favorite sweet crepe combinations:

- Cream cheese and sugar-free jam
And here are some of my favorite savory combos:

When I make them, I usually find myself having a savory combo for breakfast and then making a sweet combo for dessert later that night!
STORING YOUR CREPES
So, this recipe will make about 4 crepes, depending on how much batter you pour. And if you don't eat all of them that day, they make for an excellent breakfast throughout the week!
You can store your leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Then for the hot off the pan experience, you can simply pop them in the microwave for a few seconds.
If you still have some crepes leftover or want to make a big batch of them, you can also freeze your crepes for up to 3 months. Just wrap the crepes in parchment paper and place them in a zip-loc bag or airtight container.
Then, to reheat your frozen crepes, let them thaw fully in the fridge and microwave for about 20 seconds until warm.
Each serving of these keto crepes has just 2 NET CARBS! And something else I love about these crepes is they are pretty high in protein.
